i wasnt making an aurguement with that statement i was stating a personal reason,, if she where wearing her seat belt she would of been crushed between the seat and the roof of the car but she was leaning to the side talking to one of her friends( no she wasnt driving) even so her back did get cut up, but like i said i do it because im a dumbass, no arguement intended plus thats not the only reason, i had one friend die two years ago, she hydroplaned and got crushed, another occurance the wreck didnt kill him the aneurism the belt gave him killed him, these are reasons i made a personal decision about, yes all these happened by chance but thats my decision, altough if im a passenger i will put mine on because theres nothing to hold on to although a different wreck i was in when the driver hit another car head on, my seat belt didnt hold me , i had to brace my self to keep from banging my head on the dash, from what ive seen it just keeps you from flying as far so the cleanup crew can find you faster,plus it keeps whoevers driving you from getting a ticket, but if im in my own truck with a wheel to grip then no, now if airbags are involved yeah seatbelts are all good, but ive never had a vehicle with airbags, but like i sad no arguement intended, but let me ask you have you ever been in a roll over?

seatbelts save lives.

no argument.

and no, i haven't been in a rollover, but i have two friends on this site, who rolled his truck at a meet. they were wearin seatbelts. otherwise, they could have been ejected.

uncle's old fiance. didn't wear hers, ejected. died.

people everyday, ejected = die

seatbelts should be worn at all times. no argument.
as should motorcycle helmets.

it's not a discussion or argument, it's a fact.

your parents must have raised you wearing a seatbelt, no?

merry christmas. buckle up.

cuz you are not as strong as you think you are.

the next time you wreck, break your wrists(and it can happen easily) holding onto that wheel, and get ejected, your family will be real sad thinking "it could have been avoided had he worn his seatbelt"...

no one says "oh no, had he had his seatbelt off he would have survived, instead of being crushed in his seat."

man, it's just not something to do w/o.

i hope you get tickets until you wear it.

Do I need to start telling you about the carnage and tragedy I've seen or experienced first hand from people not wearing a seatbelt? There is no defense any of you can possibly come up with that supports not wearing one. It is simply not possible. Of course, someone will think of some 1 in 10 billion chance accident where it might make things worse but the other 9,999,999,999 chances are in favor of the seatbelt. For those that don't wear one simply to revolt against the law because "it's my right to chose", well congradulations... your a fool. I'm sure when you have your face smeared 50' down the road with a leg twisted around behind your back and an arm missing, your friends and family will say to themselves "Wow, Billy died a violent and senseless death fighting for what he believed in."

HOLY COMMA USAGE!

Hey right beside the comma key is another one with a dot on it. It looks like this----> .

When you end a statement, press that key instead of the comma key. See!? I did it!

Wouldn't your mother or english teacher slap the **** out of you if they saw you type a sentence that included 13 commas and no periods? That's probably the longest run-on sentence I've ever read, and that's after revising 7th graders english papers.

Welcome to the site, but your arguement won't stand a chance in real life, on these forums, on any public forum, in court, or in heaven/hell. Drop the seatbelt usage bull crap before you kill yourself, and I too hope you receive hundreds of dollars in seat-belt usage tickets for the rest of your life until you grow up enough to look at the facts and statistics.

I've been wearing a seat belt my whole life, and I don't drive my vehicle without it. If someone rides with me, the truck stays in park until they put it on. If they refuse, they get kicked out, no matter who it is. I've been rude to my grandfather after he argued with me to put it on. I finally refused to drive him and he submitted. My brother was in a horrible accident and common sense says if he didn't have his seat belt on he would have died.
I've lost 3 of my high-school friends to accidents involving being ejected from the vehicle. All 3 of those were in Georgia on sharp curves.

There's a nationwide law now stating that you must wear your seatbelt or you will receive a ticket. No excuses, no warnings, no second chances. From the looks of the girls around your truck you're a pretty young dude and think you're invincible. Listen to these guys and do what we're saying, much less what every law-enforcement angency is demanding, and what every statistic should convince you to do. Drop the rediculous arguement because there simply isn't one.

Of the 31,910 vehicle occupants killed in crashes in 2001, 60 percent were not wearing a safety belt. [The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Annual Assessment of Motor Vehicle Crashes, 2001]

Safety belts saved 13,274 lives in 2001, and if all vehicle occupants over age 4 had been wearing safety belts, 7,334 more lives could have been saved, NHTSA estimates. [NHTSA, Traffic Safety Facts Overview, 2001]


Seventy-three percent of the people who were in a fatal crash in 2001 and were restrained survived; of those who were not restrained, only 44 percent survived. [NHTSA, Annual Assessment of Motor Vehicle Crashes, 2001]

In fatal crashes, 75 percent of all passenger car occupants who were totally ejected were killed. Only 1 percent of those occupants had been using a safety belt. [NHTSA, Traffic Safety Facts Overview, 2001]

In the past 26 years, safety belts prevented 135,000 fatalities and 3.8 million injuries, saving $585 billion in medical and other costs. If all vehicle occupants had used safety belts during that period, nearly 315,000 deaths and 5.2 million injuries could have been prevented and $913 billion in costs saved. [NHTSA, Economic Impact of Crashes, 2002]

In 2001, 64 percent of all 18- to 34-year-old passenger vehicle occupants who were killed or severely injured in crashes were not wearing safety belts. By comparison, among vehicle occupants age 35 and older who were killed or severely injured in crashes, 48 percent were not buckled up. [Fatality Analysis Reporting System, 2001 Annual Report File (ARF)]

In 2001, 68 percent of the 18- to 34-year-old male passenger vehicle occupants who were killed or severely injured in crashes were not wearing safety belts. Fifty-four percent of the women age 18 to 34 who were killed or severely injured in crashes were not buckled up. [Fatality Analysis Reporting System, 2001 Annual Report File (ARF)]

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for people age 15 to 24 in the United States. [National Center for Health Statistics, National Vital Statistics Report, 2002]

In 2001, 63 percent of 16- to 20-year-old drivers and passengers killed or seriously injured in crashes were not wearing a safety belt. [Fatality Analysis Reporting System, 2001 Annual Report File (ARF)]

If it is my time to go I will go whether I have a seat belt on or not. In August a good friend of mine had a car accident, was ejected from the car and then crushed under it. It has been speculated that he hit his head on the roof prior to being ejected and that is what actually killed him. HE HAD HIS SEATBELT ON. The idea that a seatbelt changes your fate is absurd.
I wear my belt not because I want to but because I cannot afford the tickets for not wearing it.
Your statistics mean absolutely nothing to me, because you cant tell me that any of the lives used to accumulate that data would be here today had they just stayed in bed the day of their wreck.

ahah id love to but 3 of the 4 didnt make it, 2 on one side where shredded, 1 was bent in and prolly not safe to use theres one left intact, i found out to get brand new bullet hole rims its 800 ****in dollers for 15 inch, but sorry man i would if they where usable.
the excessive comas are from teaching my self to type 4 years ago, last time i was flamed by punctuation was by a whiney nerd i killed in a computer game
i know very well im not invincible,im hospitalized on average 3 times a year its the fact that i do not care, growing up in a city full of uncared for kids wanting to be "gangsta" i was going to junior highschool basicly to fight through another day, they had enough cops on duty to fill a prison, thats how bad it was,georgia was founded as a prison colony so what do you expect. if i was lucky to make it through the day id come home to a step dad to put the icing on the cake, going through that kinda **** makes you numb, but im not one to sing woah is me, ive found it it can ALWAYS be worse ,this is the 3rd time i should of died, i laughed when i crawled out, but then the fact i only had liability settled in, but i never argued about the rights and wrongs of seatbelts i just stated why I dont wear them being the fact i dont trust them, its not to fight the law, the two parents that brought me up are cops, ironicly there both pot heads, ive never touched a joint, they even tell me its ok, which im sure it is but i dont care to find out, thus i have a tremendous respect for the law, not to say i dont break it every day, but i cant stand my parents either but what adolesent doesnt , i never made an arguement with any of my post i just told my reason, if anyone makes a decisioin not to wear them based on my post then thats your fool, theres no point in flaming me over an argument i never made, that just shows your matureity, so could we just stop with the pointless seat belt "argument" and get back to rangers?
ok then heres wher eim at, everythings in tact, the frames not ****ed up, nor is the engine, it turns over fine, but it wont crank, i think a ground wire has come loose somewhere, but the only ground wire i know how to find is the one for the battery, i havnt checked yet but im gonna test the plug cables to see if there fireing, so could you guys give me any ideas/ infos to where a ground wire may have come loose?

Ive done it! the engine runs, but only with starting fluid, the problem is i thought there was a half tank of gas left but i got under to check it out and found an oak branch lodged into the tank , as soon as i get something to plug the hole and adjust the brake lines "The Decapitater" will be ready to go
without the extra drag the windshield caused ill be able to pull about 110 around that curve, no more *****ing about seatbelts because there wont be anywhere the mount them
thankyou for all the welcomes, the flames, and the attempted discouragement
once my photo messeging starts working again ill show you all the retardation in action

Dude, you have ****ing problems. I'll admit that I'm an extremely dangerous driver, BUT I ALWAYS wear my seatbelt and make anyone riding with me do the same. Having a friend die because of my mistake would drive me insane. Do you think not wearing one makes you look cool?

I'm sure that believing that a seatbelt almost killed your friend discourages you to use it, but still, thats ****ing stupid. A helluva lot of people know someone who was thrown from their vehicle because they didn't have a seatbelt on. I do. The result? Virtually always death. From your comments, your obviously very unintelligent. My advice is BUCKLE THE **** UP DAMMIT. Oh, and get a new truck.
